Well shoot dang - one day too late for resale

Boooooo. I'd wanted to put in an offer on a resale contract yesterday, but had to wait until close of business to confirm the specifics with DH - he was in meetings all day. Called first thing this am and someone else swooped in and got it. Big fat bummer.

Live and learn. And now we wait to find another one - while hoping the prices stabilize!

They are FLYING off the shelf. Half the time when I call to ask they say "oh, that one just sold"

I'd get confirmation on specifics from your husband now. "I'll pull the trigger if I see this resort, or this resort, for this range of points, for this much money or less, OK?"

Good contracts don't wait for husbands to get out of meetings.

No they certainly don't! Lol!

This was our first attempt at resale, and I'd done lots of homework. But experience is the best teacher, right? I'm going to look at the bright side: Now that DH knows we must be quick, perhaps it will mean a contract with more points! :-)

Onward!! Come on, contracts! Where are you?

Just out of curiosity - are you the contract thief? :-)

No but I thought we were. We had thought we bought the Fidelity 100 pt AKV for $70 a point. Offer was accepted yesterday then today we find it was sold to someone else.
Good luck to you (and us).

I would recommend ranges - if you want VAKL, that's good. But from there say 150-175 points. Use year in the Spring (or whatever). And anything under $XX a point - assuming the contract has not been stripped. If its been stripped, have a value for lost points.

Then, once you do pull the trigger, do the impossible - stop looking. Because I guarantee you the day after your offer is accepted, you'll find something with loaded points for $3 a point cheaper than you just paid.

Dang! Sorry to hear that. We saw a SSR contract on Saturday night and submitted the online form to get more info. TSS responded the next morning (Sunday). The contract had been up less than a day. We went ahead and made an offer and it was accepted within 1 hour. PP is right - they are flying off the shelf. Good luck the next time around.
